-no thinking only fun
-kissing, but especially pining
-again really just very fun
An update to my #MSWL:
I'm looking for more MG & YA thrillers/mysteries in my inbox. Whether you have an unreliable narrator, a group of friends trying to solve/find something, or some weird magic going on, I'd love to see it!
Daniel Barnes @ C2E2 L12 @Danny8bitThe 2014 Ninja Turtles movie might be a bit of a mixed bag, but I’ve always loved the scene where they all start beatboxing in the elevator, on the way to their battle with Shredder
It perfectly captures the fact that they’re goofy teenage brothers pic.twitter.com/pTgs2Oh615
I think abt TMNT a lot, lol.
I want a YA ft. a friendship dynamic (esp. w/ a group of boys!) that reflects this sibling dynamic, & directly opposes—
The societal idea that boys aren't allowed to show they love each other the way these idiots did!
I JUST REALLY LOVE TMNT! #MSWL
For our third and final children's book agency Meet the Team post, we meet @LitAgentClare 🌟Clare is on the lookout for new and exciting talent, so head over to our blog for her manuscript wish list 👀 #MSWL
Currently listening to Binge Mode Harry Potter, rewatching ATLA, next rewatch Dawson’s Creek. Next read? Hopefully some YA or MG featuring a ride or die group of friends. A story where friendship and love is central to the protag’s success. #MSWL
I’ve been in such a Mood for two very different kinds of books:
(1) Southern fiction a la Kristy Woodson Harvey, with warmth, setting as character, female friendships and/or multigenerational families, and secrets/hardships that come to light. Can be A or YA!
Always always on the hunt for diverse, creative contemporary YA that can capture the humor, heart, and playfulness of anime. 💖
Bonus if the story involves friends sharing their passions (geeky or not) or has some delicious food. #mswl
#MSWL I am working through queries received January 20th. I would love to see more of a few things in my inbox!
• YA contemporary. Bring me an up-to-date Girl: Interrupted! Combustible, all-consuming friendships, high stakes situations, departure-from-everyday-life stories.
I would REALLY REALLY like a “Dumplin” for the middle grade audience. In these formative years, there needs to be a book about accepting/loving yourself, how to handle bullies, positive coping mechs, finding true friends, and just general body positivity. #MSWL

Of course I’m looking for character-driven and heartfelt MG and YA, but I’m also very hungry for upmarket adult fiction and romance! Give me all your family, friend, and romantic angst! #MSWL

I have been a Love Island UK evangelist for several years. Winter season is no less, BUT if you’re writing a book about reality tv, set on a reality show, or girl friendships of the toxic or not variety (YA, Adult) I want to read it!
